  1. Hi- I am sailing on my first Carnival Cruise. I have 100 shares of CCL. Would anyone do me a favor and post a link or send me the Carnival form for the shareholder benefit? I have looked all over their website and cannot seem to find it. Thank you so much! Tracie-Lynn
  2. I tried this once... The ship was sailing full for the second leg, but they created a waiting list. I did not clear the waiting list. Others have this same idea, I guess... I was on a cruise that was not sailing full- they sent a note to passengers to see if they wanted to stay on. I wish I could have taken them up on that offer. I don't know if they do that anymore.
  3. That is just not fun... I wonder if there was a charter group that focused on art aboard for your cruise... Either way- No bueno!
  4. I loved the Diamond... If you have some time, book a stay in the Izumi Onsen. It was a lovely little escape.
  5. Us Cackilacky Girls have to stick together! I love traveling alone... It is so easy- and a bit indulgent, even a tinge selfish. I typically book in TD in the MDR- This lets the waitstaff get to me a bit.
  6. I second site blog here on CC in the form of Live Froms... I am getting ready to pull the trigger on an independent blog site... If I can get it figured out.
  7. As I almost always DIY or book privately, I shoot for an hour before departure... just to hedge my bets.
  8. This is one of those times that I am grateful that I am not a drinker. I typically trade out my mini for Perrier or a coffee card. I bring water/ sparkling water on board with me. (With that said, I want to make it clear- I am not judging... I know that it is a vacation and people spend on what they value. I don't hesitate to book the Sanctuary or the Thermal Suite.)
  9. You can do it on your Cruise Personalizer. Personally, I request a table for 2, knowing they will not pair anyone with me- which is my preference. I use meals as times to catch up on my blog and reading. As a rule, I am pretty shy/ introverted/ socially awkward in person- I opt not to inflict that on other people!
  10. I have been in a suite at least 6 times... I have never had an escort. Like an above post- I was escorted on an NCL cruise.
  11. Uber and Lyft are so easy to use. I hope you take the plunge and try it! I will say- years ago- when Uber was new- I signed up and just took a "trial run" to see if I liked it... I was sold!
  12. Yes. You can use it to open your cabin door and to make on-board purchases.
  13. Thank you... It will be a long 34 days with just a couch and a desk chair... not that I am complaining (well, too much)- the extra comfy chair would be very nice to have.
  14. They do make special padded bags to use to pack bottles of liquor and wine. Not sure if they are fool-proof, but it might protect your investment.
